Show Description:
Presented in its original and complete two act form, Violet tells the story of a girl, struck by an axe blade when her father was chopping wood, leaving her with a visible scar across her face. With enough money finally saved, she’s traveling across the 1964 Deep South towards a miracle- the healing touch of a TV evangelist that will make her beautiful again.
